Exclamation Help Please for a novice

Hi Could you please help a tech novice with the following problem. I have 2 laptops BOTH using Windows 10 and with the same log-in details for my microsoft and my google accounts. I now want to sell one of them but was thinking if i did a factory reset on this would it also wipe out everything on the other laptop? Forgive me for my ignorance but I would appreciate some help on how to get over this problem thankyou.

Did you set them both up to sync with each other? If not, then no way. But even if you did sync them, I don't see how a factory reset on one would affect the other.

If still worried, unplug and remove the battery from the notebook you want to keep. Then disable networking (or unplug your modem) for the notebook you want to sell and then do the factory reset.
